Simple Raindrops – Shards Of DuBois



watchin’ raindrops race down the window glass

one seems to skid his way to the bottom

another takes detours scooting and stalling

an express slipping along in a canal

previously etched by a slammer

or maybe a determined scooter

cheating gets him pool time

skid row hits the vertical tracks

disappears in an unseen suck

forever molded between metal and sill

the scooter meets up with a staller

joining forces into warp speed

disintegrate into a quick spit

the slow droolers last the longest

changing direction bit by bit

a legion reaching the bottom eventually

their intended goal

“Is that it?”
